Yesterday, October 21, the House Oversight and Reform Committee held a hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment: Achieving Constitutional Equality for All.

Led by Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), this was the first full House Committee hearing on the ERA since the 1970s. The ERA Coalition hosted a press conference in advance of the event, featuring all 6 of the Chairwoman's witnesses, as well as several members of Congress and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). You can watch the entire presser here (it was a quick 30 minute event):

After the press conference, the ERA Coalition hosted a conversation with Jessica Neuwirth (ERA co-founder and current ERA Coalition/FFWE Board Member), Linda Coberly (chair of the ERA Coalition Legal Task Force), Mona Sinha (Board Chair of the Fund for Women's Equality), Kimberly Peeler-Allen (Board Chair of the ERA Coalition), and Steve Andersson (ERA Coalition/FFWE Board Member and founder of GOP 4 ERA) prior to the start of the hearing. The group was able to give context to the importance of the hearing at this time in the fight for certification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
